Aluminium Composite Panel Signs

Aluminium composite panel signs are some of the most common types of signs. Generally seen as permanent signage for businesses aluminium is a long life signage product.
 
ACP is made with two thin outer layers of aluminium wrapped around a foam core. This gives the product its lightness and also its strength. Aluminium will last a lot longer than corrugated plastic or foamboard so it is used for building signage where the application is longer than 12 months.
 
Aluminium signs are used on building sites where the sign can be taken from job to job. ACP is virtually unbreakable with normal wear and tear and signs can last up to 7 years depending on their exposure to UV light.
 
Aluminium signs are made by applying a long term PVC sticker to the face of the panel. The sticker is generally laminated to prolong the life of the print. A telltale sign that an alumimum sign needs replacing is that it will look sunburnt. Signs that look red or cracked with age should be refaced or replaced.
 
ACP can be cut into custom shapes with an CNC router and has numerous application methods depending on the use.
